Need help on blocking ads on www.locast.org

#1

hi i been trying to block the in-video ads that come up every 15 minutes on www.locast.org
i installed adam:one assistant, and block every domain that comes up when im watching a video on the website, but even after that i still get the in video ads on this website when im streaming channels

any help or recommendation will be highly appreciate.

It is likely that the ads are being served from the same domains as the video. What domains are you seeing when you play a video from that site (a few examples)?

That looks like a DNSThingy/AdamOne dump. What are you specifically seeing in your /var/log/pihole.log when you play a video?

pihole -t and then open a video

sorry im very new to this i dont know how to get that information im using the gui to connect to pihole from a windows pc. (pihole -t) is that a terminal command you want me to use directly on the raspberry pi? or can i get that information from the gui

From the GUI > tools > tail pihole log ; this accomplishes the same as the terminal command pihole -t, but without the color coding for blocked domains.

The source of the ads is one of these domains, none of which are blocked.

Duh, you blocked everything and it still shows up?

Only block cdn.localcast.com and flush the DNS cache of the computer.

On PC is that in a dosbox by typing ipconfig /flushdns
